[image]The Great Lakes - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
The North American Great Lakes are seeing record low water levels — lower than at any time in the last 35 years. Since 1997, above normal temperatures have been increasing evaporation and decreasing the inflow from tributaries. In addition, below average winter precipitation has meant the lakes haven't received their normal "re-charging" from spring snowmelt, and higher winter temperatures have decreased ice cover, which normally prevents evaporation...

[image]Fires in Mexico and Central America: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
The large number of fires that have been burning in southern Mexico and parts of northern Central America over the last two months have produced high concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO) in the lower atmosphere over the region. This false-color map of CO concentrations was acquired by the Measurements of Pollution in The Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument on NASA's Terra satellite. The image shows the mixing ratio of CO at about 3 km (700 hPa) above the surface for May 3-8, 2003...

Thick haze is an annual problem on the Indonesian islands of Borneo and Sumatra during the dry season, which runs from about May through September. Along with the dry season comes large fires, often set to clear land for agriculture. This year, the choking haze and smoke produced by such fires grew particularly bad during the third week of August.

Who is responsible when smoke fills the sky? Do people who set agricultural fires deserve the blame, or are natural cycles the real culprit? The correct answer may be ''yes.'' In the case of wildfires in Indonesia, human activity and natural cycles likely conspire to create devastating fire seasons. Fire has long served as a cheap, easy means of clearing land for crops and tree plantations. While some fires die out before causing extensive damage, others burn out of control, invading nearby fore...
